In the form of journal entries, write a story by providing short glimpses into a person’s life at different stages.
Real people in real-life situations are not always driven through the manuscripts of their lives by a single, all-encompassing goal. So if your story doesn’t have one, don’t freak out just yet.
Retell a well known fairytale but have the characters aware they are in a story this time.
Self-awareness will be the greatest weapon in your character development arsenal. If you don’t have it, dive deep and get it.
